Year 2 Module 4: Project Implementation


The purpose of Module 4 – Social Enterprise Management is for students to effectively launch and start operating their social enterprise within the community. While operational, they will learn about sales, operations and finances all through experiential learning related to their social enterprise.

Module Overview

During this module students explore the design process and develop many social enterprise ideas that have economic viability, paired with a social or environmental mission.

In Module 04: Social Enterprise Management, students launch and start running the operations of their social enterprise. To run the operations, students will employ simple management techniques like inventory management, cash management, human resources, customer relationship management, sales and production activities.

Students will also develop sales and marketing tools in order to increase awareness of their social enterprise with the goal of increasing both sales and impact. Students will also begin to put together presentations on their social enterprise which can be used for Module 5 – Show What You Know as well as for potential investors, partners and/or customers.

Throughout this module, students will keep track of their business expenses and revenues, and identify any profits or losses. If profits are generated, students will make strategic decisions on how best to reinvest their profit for maximal social impact.
